    Displays a list of files and subdirectories in a directory. DIR [drive:][path][filename] [/A[[:]attributes]] [/B] [/C] [/D] [/L] [/N] [/O[[:]sortorder]] [/P] [/Q] [/R] [/S] [/T[[:]timefield]] [/W] [/X] [/4] [drive:][path][filename] Specifies drive, directory, and/or files to list. /A Displays files with specified attributes. attributes D Directories R Read-only files H Hidden files A Files ready for archiving S System files I Not content indexed files L Reparse Points - Prefix meaning not /B Uses bare format (no heading information or summary). /C Display the thousand separator in file sizes. This is the default. Use /-C to disable display of separator. /D Same as wide but files are list sorted by column. /L Uses lowercase. /N New long list format where filenames are on the far right. /O List by files in sorted order. sortorder N By name (alphabetic) S By size (smallest first) E By extension (alphabetic) D By date/time (oldest first) G Group directories first - Prefix to reverse order /P Pauses after each screenful of information. /Q Display the owner of the file. /R Display alternate data streams of the file. /S Displays files in specified directory and all subdirectories. /T Controls which time field displayed or used for sorting timefield C Creation A Last Access W Last Written /W Uses wide list format. /X This displays the short names generated for non-8dot3 file names. The format is that of /N with the short name inserted before the long name. If no short name is present, blanks are displayed in its place. /4 Displays four-digit years Switches may be preset in the DIRCMD environment variable. Override preset switches by prefixing any switch with - (hyphen)--for example, /-W.

The syntax is the correct method of typing a command. The command must be entered in the correct order and spelling for the operating system to accept it. So : dir/w is correct But dir \w Is not..
dir/w will display the contents of the current directory, but in a wide format dir/p will display the contents of the current directory until your screen is full. You then press any key to scroll down the directory listing until you reach the end. dir will display the contents of the current directory with each directory item shown on a new line. you can use each of these switches together too.
dir/w/p will display the contents of the current directory in a wide format but the listing will pause when the screen is full. Pressing any key will scroll the listing down. A word to the wise. If you are not comfortable or have little or no experience with working in the DOS Command environment, DONT.... You can cause serious damage to a system simply by mistyping a command or using the wrong command. Do so at your own risk..

What does error syntax mean


You enter a command. It is like an English sentence with a syntax (correct structure). If the structure of the command is wrong, you have a syntax error. You could use a minus - sign, instead of a change sign (-) that constitutes a syntax error.

SYNTAX ERROR


I am willing to bet that if the calculator could talk she would tell you to stop feeding it commands that make no sense. Joking aside, each command has a certain syntax, similar to sentences you make in English: a prescribed order of the components of the sentence.

For some calculators (the older generations) you press a number then the square root key to get the square root. For the newer ones, you press the square root key. The calculator keeps waiting until you enter the radicand, then it calculates the root.
So before using the command you must know in what order to press the key sequence. If you get an error with a certain key order, do the opposite.

Now, why is the calculator giving you a syntax error always?. There could be may reasons.Try a simple addition or a multiplication. If you get a syntax error, it may be due the computational mode. You may be in statistics mode , or some other modes, I cannot begin to guess, because you say nothing about what you were doing when you get the errors.
Try to reset the calculator to get to default computational mode.

Syntax 07 Error


Syntax 07 error may occur from the next reasons:

1. If the command contains a syntax error. Look for misplaced functions, arguments, parentheses, or commas.

2. Exponents can not be more than three digits.

3. Sign = is not valid in parentheses excepr where an expressions is required.

4. Axes in DifEq must be Q, t, or Q'

Whenever the command expand, diff or integrate are use it comes up with wrong argument. I have tried to clear all variables and default the set up but to no avail.


I believe you are using the wrong syntax for the commands.
diff ( function, variable) Example: diff (sin(x^2), x) sgould give you 2.x.cos(x^2)
expand( will expand an expression that has parentheses: expand( (a+b)^2) will give a^2+2a.b+b^2
Integrate $
$ ( tan^-1(x), x) willl give x.tan^-1(x) -(1/2) ln ('x^2+1')

Check the syntax of a command before using it. You will find the list of all comands and their syntax in the reference manual.

What is ERR:SYNTAX on ti-84 plus calculator


If you want to correct the error you will have to disclose what you were trying to calculate.
Anyway, each command has to be written in a specific way ( a specific sequence of symbols) to be understood by the calculator.
Foe example, if the command is sin(X) you cannot write it as sin() X or X sin. You must respect the way a command is to be entered, otherwise you get rubbish or a SYNTAX ERROR message.
Usually the calculator will ask you GO TO or QUIT. If you choose GO TO the cursor will jump to the place where the error occurred and you may be able to correct the syntax.

Hi. can i calulate the integrals with TI83?if yes how can i do it


Hi,
Yes you can calculate numerical values of in tegrals. The function is called fnInt(. It is accessible through
  1. the CATALOG of commands:
  2. [2nd][0](CATALOG) and
  3. press [COS](F) to jump to the commands starting with f.
  4. Scroll down to highlight the fnInt( function and press [ENTER]
  5. Alternatively, press [MATH][9:fnInt(] and press [ENTER]
  6. In both cases (4 and 5),the command echoes on main screen.
Once the command is on main screen complete it by typing in its arguments. The syntax is as follows

fnInt( expr,var, lower_limit, upper_limit), to use default tolerance or
fnInt( expr,var, lower_limit, upper_limit, tol), tu use your tolerance.

In the commands above,
  1. expr is the expression for the function to be integrated.
  2. var is the name of the dummy variable of integration, usually x
  3. lower_limit is the numerical value of the lower bound
  4. upper_limit is the numerical value of the upper bound
  5. tol is a user-specified tolerance value (default is 1E-3.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Graphing inverse equations


Hello,
In parametric mode you are not drawing one function, but two functions X1(T) and Y1(T). If you use the DrawInv( command either on X1(T) or Y1(T) you get a syntax error.
However if you are drawing functions in Funct mode you can draw the inverse of the function that has been graphed.
Here is how you do it.

[2nd][Draw][8: DrawInv] [ENTER]
The command appears on the home screen, and you need to tell it the function it will act on. To do so press
[VARS] --> Y-Vars [1:Function]
and select the function you want, say Y1, if Y1 has already been defined.

DrawInv Y1 [ENTER]
Both Y1 and its inverse will be drawn.

Hope it helps.
